The Return of Minimalism Inspired By Newcomer Designer Wayne

Designers have rediscovered that less is more all over again for Spring 2010. While it's no surprise that some of the dominant forces of the trend came from 90's designers like Donna Karan and Calvin Klein, they weren€™t the only ones pioneering the trend. Phoebe Philo's triumphant return to fashion at the helm of the French brand Celine had a distinct minimalist look, as did Yves Saint Laurent and relative newcomer Wayne Lee. This isn't the strict androgynous minimalism of the 90s; think of it more like minimalism "light". Clean color palates and crisp lines are given a feminine edge with draped jersey dresses and billowing chiffon skirts at Donna Karan. At Wayne's Fall 2010 line, tough cut out pants and strict blazers were given a sense of newness with the touch of chartreuse and soft cowl neck tops. With the few right pieces this trend ensures you some fuss free dressing, and since minimal hair and make-up looks work great with the trend, you might just be able to hit snooze one more time in the morning.

    Cheers for minimalism! Long time fan of Klein. I think Wayne Lee will be my new best friend. Vanessa Vogel needs to be added to this list -- just read on Daily Candy that she's back in to the biz with a website after splitting with her partner. Bonus for travelers: she seems to focus on lightweight clothing. Any other recs out there for minimalist basics would be greatly appreciated.
